Abstract

Prostate cancer (CaP) is the most common cancer in men in western countries, accounting for estimated 161,360 new cases and 26,730 deaths in the US in 2017. Chemo-/radio-resistance is an important reason for CaP progression and metastasis. CD44 is a well-documented cancer stem cell (CSC) biomarker, and one of its variants, CD44 variant 6 (CD44v6) is closely associated with aggressive behaviour and correlates with poor prognosis in a variety of human cancers. Our previous study has demonstrated increased expressions of CD44v6 in metastatic CaP cell lines and human CaP tissues which was associated with CaP progression and chemo-/radio-resistance in vitro. However, the role of CD44v6 in CaP progression and therapeutic resistance in vivo is still uncertain. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of CD44v6 in CaP development and chemo-/radio-resistance as well as underlying pathways in vivo, and find whether it is a suitable therapeutic target for CaP therapy.
